Fallingwater: A Legendary House with Waterfall by Frank Lloyd Wright

Fallingwater in PennsylvaniaIf you are interested in architecture and have ever learned about it, you might know the legendary home design Fallingwater.

The house which was owned by Kaufmann seems to be hovering over a big rock with Bear Run stream in the forest area of Pennsylvania. Now this house, which was used as a vacation spot of Kauffman family, has become a National Historic Landmark in the United States. It is absolutely a perfect and brilliant architectural masterpiece created wonderfully during that time.

Frank Lloyd Wright
The man behind this great building is Frank Lloyd Wright, an American Architect whose genius works always amaze the people and become a legend. This man is an adherence of modern architecture who loves nature very much. It certainly fit Kauffman who also loves his mountain.

When the initial design was finished, actually the Kauffman family was rather surprised by the results since they hoped to have a house with a view of the waterfall. But what was done by Frank Lloyd Wright was more than that. He would make the occupants of the house part of the waterfall. Not only seeing, but integrating into the waterfall in daily life.

I bet that everyone will be amazed by the beauty and uniqueness of the home construction. It is completely different, out of the box, from our ordinary home so far. Are you interested so? There might be a lot of beautiful rivers in your country, your own environment surrounding you. I think it would be a great idea if you try to make the river as an element which integrates and blends with the house. That would be challenging and worth to try. Now, please enjoy every part of the beauty of Fallingwater through the following pictures.
